Three beautiful places to visit when in Gothenburg

Boat life, arts or Gothenburg Amazonas? We give you three beautiful places to visit this summer.

Vinga

The westernmost point of Gothenburg

Welcome to Vinga - a beautiful island in the archipelago and a nature reserve since 1987. This is where Evert Taube grew up - a famous swedish composer, poet, author and artist - and his childhood home is now the well visited Taubemuseum at the island. Take a walk around the island and enjoy the beautiful nature, watch the waves hit the rocks, visit the lighthouse or take a swim in the ocean from one of the many cliffs.

Marstrand

Boat life and arts

Marstrand is an island with unique architecture, pittoresque houses and a popular place for boat life. At Marstrand there are lots of things you can see and do - stroll around in the harbour and enjoy the view of beautiful boats, visit one of the shops with design and crafts or explore an art exhibition at the art gallery. If that is not enough, try the spa at Marstrands Havshotell or enjoy food and drinks at any of the restaurants or cafés - there are plenty.
